Drove a new Tesla S today

Put it on auto drive while traveling the interstate today and when we got to where we were going I let it park itself. It is an impressive car. I kept trying to imagine what kind of condition it will be in at 300k miles and how the monitors will look then.

Personally I'm looking forward to autonomous cars.

I would love to drive one. What was the auto drive like? Not sure why I want to know but it seems neat. More importantly, did you put it in Ludicrous mode and punch it?

Not sure how many cars made this day and age will fare very well after 300k.

I wonder what it would cost to get all those things repaired after a medium type wreck.

Sorry no link but heard on a radio show about an Audi with lane control that going through a car wash with wax or a chip in a headlight could cost around $2500.00 due to sensors in the light. BTW I would not want to bee seen in any of the autonomous vehicles to date with all of that radar stuff on the roof. You think a cell phone sends out or receives some radiation, how about those gizmos.

Different autonomous vehicles. I think you are talking fully autonomous. Tom is talking about a Tesla that can drive itself for a few moments at a time and you have to touch the wheel every few moments to tell it you are still there. As I recall it uses GPS and cameras to tell where it is. You cannot tell it where to go, pull up a blanket and take a nap.

Im looking forward to the autonomous "sleep number" or "sealy posturepedic" future vehicle trim levels.

Move down the bench "eddie bauer" ect

LOL

Ain't that the truth. Driving the '98 E300 feels somewhat "dated" now, especially with the POS stock stereo system. Thank goodness I've still got some cassettes from back then.

The next few years are going to blow us away with the car stuff that is going on.
